The Comedy Central Roast was held last night at the Saban Theatre in Los Angeles. Alec Baldwin was the recipient of the annual event. However, jokes about Caitlyn Jenner upstaged the jabs at the famous actor.
Jenner bared the brunt of several celebrity jokes. She took it all in stride, but it became clear early on in the evening, Jenner was going to be one hot topic of the night.
The Daily Beast is reporting Will & Grace co-star Sean Hayes was the Roastmaster for the night. He began with a monologue that took aim at one of Baldwin’s biggest scandals.
“Don’t worry, Alec, nothing said tonight will be meaner than what you left on your daughter’s voicemail,” Hayes shared referencing the all too famous voicemail Baldwin left for his oldest daughter Ireland years ago.

The funnyman didn’t only take aim at Baldwin. Hayes got a little dig in at Jenner before exiting the stage.
“I can’t believe you’re here. Wow, you’ve got balls, girl,” he stated.
Hayes’ joke was only just the beginning of what Jenner was in store for the rest of the evening.
Actress Nikki Glaser was next on the list to take a shot at the I AM Cait star during her set to roast Baldwin.
“You’re a Republican. I don’t know why. You’ve already gained control over a woman’s body,” Glaser directed at Jenner.
Saturday Night Live member Chris Redd took time out of his set to comment on the fact Jenner is a Trump supporter.
“You’re like the Auntie Tom of the trans community,” Redd commented.
This is good. A little upsetting to me at first, especially since my son is dating someone transgender, but it’s good

Even famed actor Robert DeNiro got in on the action to take shots at Jenner.
“There’s something different about you, but I can’t put my finger in it,” DeNiro expressed.
Blake Griffin, who dated Caitlyn’s daughter Kendall, got in one of the best jabs of the night. It was not only directed at the reality TV star but the entire famous family. He noted Caitlyn’s gender reassignment surgery “finally confirmed that no one in that family wants a white dick.”
Oh yes, it was supposed to be the Comedy Central Roast of Alec Baldwin, but there were an awful lot of shots taken at Caitlyn Jenner during the night.
The Olympian reportedly got payback during her time on stage. Those interested in seeing Jenner get retribution can tune into the roast on Sunday, September 15th on Comedy Central.
